GSMA run an important IMEI blacklisting service whereby its operator members share their own local black lists to identify and block stolen devices across multiple networks. Local government, law enforcement, businesses and even consumers in some markets, access this data to help identify and avoid use of illegitimate devices. The service also helps tackle subscription fraud and insurance fraud.
